For my family, and I’m sure for many, the Fourth of July is a holiday that involves parades, fireworks, cookouts, family, and lots and lots of food. This cake is a must have at any Fourth of July event, or any patriotic event for that matter since it’s quick, easy, delicious, and most importantly, patriotic. It uses four simple ingredients you can find at any grocery store and can be whipped up in a matter of minutes.

I used store bought whipped topping and pound cake, but you can use homemade whipped cream and pound cake as well. You can find great whipped cream recipes here and here.
